After having sent GTA San Andreas fans into jujube soup with the tech demo on Unreal Engine 5, youtuber TeaserPlay harnesses the incredible potential of Epic’s new graphics engine to shape a hyper-realistic version of the iconic scenarios of GTA Vice City.
The content creator explains that he used the Lumen technology of Unreal Engine 5 to significantly improve the lighting setting and, in doing so, to transpose an even more immersive and authentic experience to the screen.
The fictional remake of Grand Theft Auto Vice City, of course, is not intended for sale and will not launch as a mod or project in its own right: it is “simply” a tech demo which reconstructs the gameplay, interface and urban fabric of Vice City’s most celebrated areas by drawing on polygonal models, ingame logic and particle effects downloadable from the UE5 Developer Marketplace.
The protagonist of the video made by the youtuber is obviously Tommy Vercetti, also reworked in a realistic version starting from the polygonal model and the face of the original character of GTA Vice City voiced by the late Ray Liotta. Check out the GTA Vice City fan made Remake video and let us know with a comment what you think about it.
